Phnom Penh - Ho Chi Minh City Highway (Loan - Viet Nam)
The Project has two country components, one for Cambodia and the other for Viet Nam. The main objectives of the Project were to encourage traffic and trade flows between Cambodia and Viet Nam by improving the highway link between Phnom Penh and HCM City; improving facilities at the border crossing; and facilitating Government efforts to reduce bureaucratic and procedural constraints to cross-border trade. At appraisal, the project scope of the Cambodia component of the Project consisted of: (i) civil works for reconstruction of 105 kilometers (km) of Route Number 1 (RN1) from Neak Leoung to the border with Viet Nam at Bavet; (ii) civil works for minor improvements to 58 km of RN1 from Phnom Penh to the Mekong River ferry; and (iii) consulting services for construction supervision. The Viet Nam component of the Project consisted of: (i) civil works for reconstruction of 80 km (consisting of 22 km of National Highway No. 1A [NH1A] between Thu Duc and An Suong and 58 km of National Highway No. 22A [NH22] from An Suong and the border with Cambodia at Moc Bai); (ii) consulting services for construction supervision; and (iii) incremental assistance support to the project management unit (PMU).
